Comedy and Live Music | Comedy and live music gigs in Wexford are a must when visiting our corner of the country. With festivals, seasonal events and live music on every corner of Wexford, there's sure to be something happening across the county when you visit during the winter months


Art & Crafts and Heritage Workshops | Explore a range of art and crafts events or lovely heritage workshops on traditional methods in Wexford's heritage sites, art centres and other venues that take place throughout the year
